will give you the tools you need to:

* Increase your awareness of cultural differences, behaviors and values
of dominant American culture and Hispanic/Latino culture and their
impact on delivering library services.
* Show you how to build strong community partnerships and collaborate
with the Spanish-speaking community to increase access to public
computers and resources.
* Teach you techniques for reaching out and marketing the public
library and public computers to Spanish-speaking customers.
* Help you develop an action plan for reaching out to the
Spanish-speaking customer and increasing access to public computers in
the library.

libraries participating in the Gates Foundation/WebJunction “Spanish
Language Outreach Program.”  This workshop is based on that curriculum.
